Lucia graduated with distinction from Melbourne University in 2016 when she moved back to NSW to be closer to her family home in the Southern Highlands.
She started her career at a small animal practice in Wollongong and pursued her interest in small animal surgery by completing an internship at North Shore Veterinary Specialist Hospital. Her internship allowed her to work alongside specialist Veterinarians and gain skills and knowledge in soft tissue and orthopaedic surgery, and diagnostic imaging. She is currently studying to complete her memberships in Small Animal Surgery. Lucia loves providing healthcare for animals and is dedicated to providing a high standard of care for all pets.
Outside of work, Lucia enjoys going home to the Southern Highlands to spend time with her family and their menagerie of animals, including dogs, cats, sheep, chickens, and horses.
